My card is sweet and simple today. But, I did want to share a little story with you. The first time I saw this stamp set, I knew I needed it. Sweet peas make me think of my grandpa. He was an amazing gardener. AMAZING. I had the privilege of living with my grandparents for a couple of summers during college. Right outside my room and door was a vine full of sweet peas. They have the sweetest smell and I just loved them. Just about every day when I would come home from work, on my desk would be a bunch of sweet peas in a little vase. My grandpa would pick me flowers and leave them in my room. Wasn't I lucky? What love he had for me!
as always, thanks for stopping by!
